The Company That Loaded the Truck

If a semi truck is loaded improperly, its cargo may move around during the trip. Sliding cargo may throw weight to one side of the trailer, leaving the truck unbalanced and prone to tip over.

It’s a good idea to look into how the truck was loaded if you were injured because a semi truck tipped over. The company that loaded the truck may be held responsible for your injuries.

The Company That Maintains the Truck

Everything degrades over time, and trucks are no exception. Such massive vehicles need constant maintenance to ensure that they run at peak performance and adhere to safety standards.

The company that maintains the truck may be different from the trucking company or the company that loads it. If you were injured in a semi truck accident because parts of the truck were not maintained correctly, you may be able to seek compensation from this other company.

The Trucking Company

In all of these scenarios, you may also be able to hold the trucking company responsible for your injuries. They’re the ones who employ truck drivers, choose the trucking manufacturer, and hire companies to load and maintain the truck. You may be able to argue that they were negligent if they knew these drivers, companies, or manufacturers weren’t qualified and still hired them anyway.

The trucking company itself might also be negligent if it encourages or incentivizes truckers to ignore the Hours of Service regulations.


Getting Compensation after a Fishers Truck Accident

Semi-truck accidents are more likely to cause severe injuries or even fatalities because of their size. If you were involved in a semi-truck accident, it’s likely you will have steep medical bills to cover the accident. The situation only gets worse if you’re not able to work due to your injuries. That’s why the attorneys at Hensley Legal Group want to hold responsible parties accountable.

The type of damages you may be able to recover include but are not limited to:

  • Medical expenses. This may include medical bills that are directly caused by the accident, future medical costs, and physical therapy
  • Lost wages. More than likely, your employer will not continue to pay your salary if you’re not able to work after your accident. How will you support yourself if you’re not able to work? Your personal injury attorney will try to help you recover lost wages if you’re not able to work while you recover.
  • Pain and suffering. Semi-truck accidents don’t just leave physical injuries. They can also cause victims to develop depression, anxiety, and psychological problems. These mental health issues can be treated, but sometimes they never fully go away. No one can put a price tag on pain and suffering, but your attorney may be able to recover proper compensation for you.

You can certainly try to start a personal injury claim on your own. But keep in mind that it’ll be much easier if you enlist the help of a personal injury attorney. Battling the insurance company is hard enough as it is. It can be even worse while you’re recovering from a serious injury.

Let a Fishers personal injury attorney fight for you. We want to make the legal process as easy as possible for you and your family. Together, we can make a difference with your truck accident claim.
